I have been planning to buy a simple computer to act as a server for months now and now I have seen a nice pc. Here are the specs: Intel Pentium II 350Mhz 128Mb 4,3Gb HDD (will probably be like 20 GB) Sound (will be removed) CD-Rom LAN I am trying to get full specs, but you get the idea. I want to install something like FreeBSD on it, because that's the most widely used and the most reliable, I understand from others. Further there will be Apache, PHP, MySQL installed. I also want to FTP to it and the machine will be connected to the internet through a router. What I want to do with it is to put my forums and website (based on PHP and MySQL) on it, putting my first steps into the world of server-computing and maintaining and allow other to view the contents and maybe more. Will this machine be sufficient, or should I get a better CPU or more RAM? Is there anything else I have to watch for? Is there a guide for this (for dummies like me, I have never done this before).
